Fuel oil filter for ships

Filter for liquid fuel in the maritime industry

Because the qualities of the present fuels go from bad to worse, good filtration is urgently required. Learn more about the filtration of liquid fuels in the shipping industry and its benefits.

Protection of motors

For shipping companies, the very different quality of the fuel presents a considerable problem, because the lower the quality, the greater the risk of damage to the engine. Filters for cleaning and treating ship diesel provide clean fuels in order to protect engines and their components against wear and, thus, also for economic consumption.

Heavy oil filtration

Particularly high requirements are placed on filters for heavy oil. The high viscosity of the heavy oil and also its contamination, present a specific challenge for the filters. Conventional filters for heavy oil usually leave slurries that contain valuable oil. However, BOLLFILTERs with integrated backflushing significantly reduce the slurry waste - and, thus, also the oil consumption.

BOLLFILTER´s benefits

The design of filters for liquid fuels depends on

  • the viscosity and quality of the fuel used
  • the operating temperature
  • the operating pressure
  • the volume of flow
  • and the filter fineness required

The simplex filter, duplex filter and automatic filter from BOLL & KIRCH can be installed in the suction line as well as in the pressure line. They are manufactured in a particularly robust manner for the demanding use in the navy for the filtration of fuel and, thereby, present a particularly durable and maintenance-free solution for large engines.

Cleaning and maintenance are simply and easily carried out. Especially when using automatic backflushing filters, the valuable time of the ship's crew is minimized as far as possible for cleaning or maintenance.
